Resistance is futile / Resistance is duty

I loved seeing this appropriation of the scary and turning it into the fun loving monster that only an ipod can accomplish. Nice to see the inhumane, humanised. But it is also symbolic of the power of web 2.0 advertising. This beauty was made for apple in a competition and is available at the apple galleria as a download for screensaver, wallpaper, feel free to do there advertising for them...
Not only do we have product pushed, we have product pulled.
But please in between the exterminate! exterminate, exterminate.... resistance was futile (not useless).
(Unless as put by HART (Halt all racist tours): When discrimination becomes policy, resistance is duty)
In between the protest movement of the 1970s i also remember learning cognitive dissonance, I must love eating cockroaches if the nice person tells me to do it and I do it (either that or i am incredibly stupid).
In web 2.0 advertising, I must really love the product if I invest time in making their adverts for them (or I'm sucked..)

    In all my travellings through the universe, I have battled against evil, against power-mad conspirators. I should have stayed here! The oldest civilization: decadent, degenerate, and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans, Cybermen; they're still in the nursery compared to us. Ten million years of absolute power, that's what it takes to be really corrupt!

    And you do make me wonder whether we marched alongside each other in Marlborough St

  2. I feinted wearing my motorbike helmet and had to go home sick. A dissapointment as a protester.
